Innovations for the Linked City - Business Models, Organization, Management
The pressure of society and politics due to the new energy paradigm and the splendid opportunities of the linked, decentralized city, in view of the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT), accelerate the transition of the conventional city to the Smart City. Though there are shining examples of cities that live up to their potential, such as Barcelona, Munich, Lyon and Vienna, most cities have to play catch-up on a grand scale. The gap between the leading Smart Cities and the remaining urban centers is constantly widening. People in charge know that something has to be done, but the path to achieve it is muddled and difficult.
What are the core elements of a Smart City? Where to begin? What are the steps to be taken from analysis to sweet spot to course of action? Where does the greatest potential lie? How do other cities do it and what have they learned so far? What can we learn from the Greenfield approaches of the Chinese Smart Cities? Which methods and tools can cities apply? Which are the business models of the companies involved in urban development? How to lastingly involve the various stakeholders?
This book provides answers to these questions and gives many examples. It is based on many years of research about the Smart City on a national and international level.
It also benefits from the authors’ many years of experience with practical projects in politics, administration and the economy in the application of Smart City projects.
